Fakarava Groupers' Spawning, July 5-11 2025

6 nights with 4 days of diving with the Groupers

Spend 5 nights at Pearl Havaiki Lodge in North Fakarava

Fakarava Groupers' Spawning

In French Polynesia, thousands of camouflage groupers, also known as marbled groupers, spawn in the Fakarava atoll every year between June and July. The spawning takes place in the Fakarava South Pass (Tetamanu Pass), a 35-mile-long rectangle of coral in a narrow channel at the south end of Fakarava Atoll.

In 2025, we’re lucky to witness the groupers’ spawning twice in June AND in July since there will be consecutive full moons.

We are holding 2 rooms in North Fakarava July 5-11 2024 for 6nts, with 4 days of diving with the Groupers. Staying at Pearl Havaiki, you will take a 1hr 15 minute boatride to the South Pass.

These trips sell out way in advance. Book now if you are interested in this amazing photography experience! We can also offer diving in Rangiroa to experience the best of diving in the Tuamotu’s in French Polynesia!
